The SA Press Association reports that a bar collapsed onto a restaurant below in a Harare building on Thursday.
The witnesses say ambulances took away four bodies as well as several injured people. About 30 people had been inside at the time of the accident on Thursday night.
Apparently, the bar was just above the ground-floor Sidewalk Cafe on First Street.
Of course, getting independent confirmation of something like this will be impossible in the middle of the night, without my actually driving down there. So I’ll wait for news in the morning.
Assuming it’s accurate, what a damn shame. The last thing Zimbos need is to suffer when they’re de-stressing after the daily grind. Anyway, the (empty) bed summons me.
P.S. – there’s actually a bar in Harare I don’t know about? Wonders never cease.
